Ambassador James Mugume, permanent secretary for the Ministry of foreign affairs in Uganda, knows his stuff if we believe what he said prior to the CIGLR summit in Kampala this week. He told New Vision that France and Belgium are the ones who mainly distort any progress when it comes to solving the political conflict in Eastern DRC. He is fully aware that they use the media to convince the so called international community that their solutions are better. Likely any keen observer of the region, he is not afraid to say that these western powers and their allies want to perpetuate chaos rather than bringing about peace. When I read this I thought that the summit was going to make, at least, the first step in reversing this infamous trend.
